Where are you working today / where are your appointments?
What is your favorite on-the-go lunch choice?
Do you have a favorite new local restaurant or business that you are really excited about?
Depends on where I am. In Chestnut Hill it’s Green Soul, they have the best salmon salad! In Ambler, it’s definitely El Limon, it’s the closest I’ve found to actual food from Mexico, amazing burritos! In Mount Airy it’s Trolley Car Diner for best burgers, and in the Elkins Park/Jenkintown/Glenside area it’s the original Union Jacks, best wings I have ever tasted, although Gracie’s, the new place that just opened on Limekiln Pike is extremely good and kid friendly too!!
What do you like to do in your free time – besides sell real estate?
What does your perfect weekend look like?
Actually, I’d like to hang out with the coolest person I know, my 5 year old daughter Sydney. My husband and I like to take her to plays, museums or to the movies, her excitement about everything is contagious and puts us both in a great mood! If it’s summer though, we like to go swimming or hiking/camping.
iPhone or Android?
Where is your favorite place to vacation?
What is your favorite dessert?
How do you organize your day?
I start the day with marketing, I make sure I spend at least an hour either blogging or updating my website and SOI, then onto my callbacks for the day, making appointments and then I’m off to the races either showing or going to listing appointments.
Tea or coffee?
Tea actually. I am allergic to coffee!
What is your favorite style of house?
Vacation Type: Adventurous or relaxing?
I would like to say relaxing, but I have a hard time doing that. I’m really an on-the-go person, so adventurous is really more my style. I love to try new things, places, new foods and anything else that sounds fun!
What is your favorite season of the year?
I am a Spring and Summer person. I love the warm weather! Puts me in a great mood and gets me up and running. I HATE the cold, although I like season changes, so I’m ok with Fall, but once the holidays are over I am DONE with the cold and I count the days until Spring.
Why did you decide to become a realtor?
I have ALWAYS loved houses. A lot of my family is in different aspects of the business so I was exposed to it at an early age. I was a touring musician for 20 years and when it came time to settle down in one place it was a no-brainer for me to just transition to Real Estate. I also have to say it was a no-brainer to come to Elfant Wissahickon as well. They treat us like family and I would never work anywhere else!
What is your favorite part of being a realtor?
I love the puzzles this job puts in front of you. In selling, the puzzle of finding the best way to market a property so that it goes quickly at the best price or initially figuring out what a client wants out of their Realtor, whether it be a friend/hand holder or a business-minded shark. In buying, I love the people-puzzle. Figuring out what EXACTLY they want in their perfect home and then finding it for them is so much fun for me. I hate sending people a bunch of properties that they have to wade through to get to the right one, so really figuring out what they think is best for them so I can vet through them first is always the most fun to puzzle out.

I was born and raised in Germantown. My family lived on the 5100 Block of Keyser until I was six years old. We eventually grew out of the 3 bedroom row home on Keyser Street (7 children can do that) and moved to a large twin home on the 400 block of Manheim Street, right across from the Germantown Cricket Club. I got married in 1984 and moved – a whopping three blocks – to the 4800 block of McKean Avenue. I no longer live in Germantown, but I still own property there and my company lists and sells more homes in Germantown than any other Realtor*.
My roots in the area keep it near and dear to my heart. Positive news about “my neighborhood” always makes me feel great and I enjoy sharing it:
This recent article, available here, in the Philadelphia Business Journal indicates that there is a new marketing campaign on the way for Historic Germantown. That’s great news for one of Philadelphia’s most Historic neighborhoods!
